Women’s Health 

Health and healing through all stages of a woman's life…


We work closely with all of our clients through their transitions in womanhood.


Early Womanhood

Changes in a young woman’s life happen fast and can feel like a bit of rollercoaster. Here at Rakuda, we want to help young women have an easier transition into the physical and emotional maturation of the teens and 20’s.

Through acupuncture, herbal medicine and supportive modalities, we can help:

  • Hormonal balancing

  • Diet and nutrition

  • Becoming sexually active

  • Understanding physical and emotional changes

  • Adapting to stress and menstrual changes


The childbearing years can be supported through acupuncture and integrative medicine in the following ways:

  • Fertility awareness, and support in getting pregnant

  • Pre and postpartum pregnancy care

  • Support through the first 40 days after birth…(We believe that this is one of the most important times to nourish and strengthen the body.)



Acupuncture and herbal medicine promote a healthy environment for conception to occur naturally, and increases the success rate of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Aria Simpson LAc. offers guidance with lifestyle, diet, and nutritional needs to ensure the best foundation to prepare for pregnancy. The following are some of the benefits of acupuncture for fertility;

  • Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs (uterus and ovaries)

  • Promoting implantation in the uterus

  • Reduce stress and anxiety to help relax the patient

  • Strengthening the immune system and supporting general health to promote a healthy pregnancy and baby.

  • Reducing side effects of drugs used in ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) procedures.



Conception Time

These fertility treatments focus on increasing the blood supply to the uterus, which helps build a healthy uterine lining for a fertilized egg to implant. They also:

  • Assist ovulation

  • Increase cervical fluids

  • Improve egg and sperm quality

  • Reduce stress and side effects caused by other fertility treatments.


Pregnancy concerns that we help to address:

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Constipation

  • Pelvic pain

  • Hemorrhoids

  • Heartburn

  • Low back pain

  • Fatigue

  • Carpal tunnel

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Breech and posterior babies

  • Labor induction

  • Delayed labor

  • Edema

  • Insomnia

  • Vaginal itching


Menopausal Years

Similar to the early transitions into womanhood; the menopausal years are a time of big changes both physically and emotionally. We like to help women during this time with:

  • Hormonal support through diet and herbs

  • Life transitions and new awakenings

  • Lifestyle changes to nourish this profound and powerful time

  • Hot flashes and sleeplessness


Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are uniquely able to support women's reproductive health through all stages of her life.

What a gem! Aria is a gifted healer. Aria helped me with fertility issues. I was trying to get pregnant with IVF and after 4 months of seeing Aria, I got pregnant and now have a healthy baby boy!
